By combining a verb and an adverb or preposition in this manner, we can extend the usual meaning of the verb (to fall down has the same meaning as to fall, only emphasized) or create a new meaning, different from the one that the verb has on its own (to call = to make an appeal but to call off = to cancel, to abandon). Some phrasal verbs keep the individual meanings of their parts:My secretary has brought back the report. Would you like to see it?Other phrasal verbs have a different meaning from the individual parts:He made up a story to explain his delay in sending the goods.Note that phrasal verbs are never written as a single word or with a hyphen.

That category is the share of national wage and salary income that comes directly from governments. And it turns out that this fact is largely responsible for the economic good news.
In the Republican platform, most of the economic statistics referred to recent months. "Over the last year," the Republicans stated, "gross domestic product grew at one of the fastest rates in two decades." It reported that since August 2003, "1.5 million new jobs have been created."
Such numbers ignore the recession at the beginning of the Bush administration, and the slow recovery that followed until growth took off in mid-2003, when one tax cut - the child credit - put significant cash into the pockets of parents just in time to make that year's back-to-school shopping season a very good one."
In groups of four, comment on the situation or make up a dialogue between the manager and his secretary, using phrasal verbs from the lists in SECTION B. Here are a few that might be suitable:
